1,
SIZE, its all about what you’ve got between your legs. Make sure your space hopper is the right size for you. Under 5’9 you’ll want a 65cm. over 5’9 go bigger 85cm is the next size up…

2,
LOVE HANDLES….
Its horns or handles in this game baby! Holding horns can be dam hard work so chose carefully. Handles make less work and give you hold options…

3,
SMOOOTH!
Chaffing, you grip the ball with the back of your legs and your fore arms rub on the thighs, go long lycra if you can, long duration will cause baby smooth skin!!

4,
PUMP IT UP!
By default bouncing on a ball will make it deflate, it’ll need a pump up around every mile, so spares and a pump are good idea’s..

5,
Scratchy bum.
The hoppers underbelly will get seriously scratched up, think about the location and route of your journey! Also, hopping up hill is dam tough, stay on the flat.

6,
GO LONG, and high.
It’s almost impossible to just go long and low, length comes with height but be careful if you’re not fully in control you can easily get thrown off…

7,
FUEL
It’s a tough choice, drinking and eating whilst bouncing up and down can be daft just daft. Sip water and take small bites of food. Don’t take on loads of anything you’ll just throw it back up!
8,
Don’t underestimate how much fun this really is! And for £15, everyone should have space hopper!
